    "Pirates of Penzance" Signed Poster. Colorful 14" x 22" poster for The Pirates of Penzance, the Gilbert and Sullivan musical that made a splash on Broadway, winning the 1981 Tony Award for "Best Reproduction of a Play or Musical." Kaye Ballard eventually replaced Estelle Parsons as Ruth ("a piratical 'maid of all work'") during the play's long run, and this was her poster, signed by the company, including Treat Williams (who'd replaced Kevin Kline as the Pirate King) and Karla DeVito (who'd replaced Linda Ronstadt as Mabel). In Excellent condition. From the collection of Kaye Ballard. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
